When Leon (Aaron Altaras) joins Mario's football club, an immediate tension brews between them; both players are talented, driven and prepared to fight for their spot on the first team. When the pair are moved into a flat with one another, the competitive tension turns sexual. As their relationship intensifies, Mario (Max Hubacher) and Leon become inseparable, yet Mario is desperate to hide their love from his teammates. As rumours of their relationship begin to circulate, the boys are forced to make a choice; their careers, or each other.

A good LGBT+ film to watch - Mario review by SB

Spoiler Alert
04/11/2018

This is about as realistic a football LGBTQ+ movie you are going to get, one that was partly helped by the football world, but only a little. We know how closted the world is, partly because of the ridicolous amounts of money involved in the business in the first place. Yes it's a little timid, yes it doesn't turn the football world upside down, but it's a step closer to the eventual truth we will get one day, from a very over closeted cloak and dagger world of a business that hides what it does not like, all because of hundreds and hundreds of millions of pounds it has swilling within it.

Examines the Choices Footballers Face - Mario review by KW

Spoiler Alert
02/01/2019

If you are a gay footballer but in the closet this a film for you. It will highlight the choices, options you have as to whether you remain closeted or open and the issues that can arise from either option
